New York Tea Party

Today, Saturday the 28th, there will be a "Tea Party" protest being held in City Hall Park. That's 249 Broadway, New York, from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm.

There will be socializing afterwards.

If you want to spot me then I'll be the guy with the faux pitchfork.

I'm fed up with these stimulus bills.

Hum, that's right where I live so no amount of laziness will justify not going. I'll be wearing a black wool coat and blue jeans, short dark hair.

The faux-pitchfork is clearly seen on the first pic.


Please keep up the updates as to when/if/where the tea parties will be held in the future


Arthur did pick me out of the crowd and we spent the afternoon with another libertarian friend of his discussing various topics.

All in all the extemporaneous speakers were disappointing by a 3 to 4 ratio at least. Lots of crazies got up to speak. Arthur and I were laughing at some of the comments. Some nut dressed up quasi-military style with a patch reading "Border Patrol" came up behind us and Arthur pretended to be nervous.

Some guy walking by the protest yelled out "You lost, live with it." To which I raised my voice (not loud enough for him to hear) "I always lose. I vote Libertarian".

So out of the millions that live in NY only about 150-200 showed up. Sad really.

Lots of crazies got up to speak.

I thought the crowd would be the living-out-of-a-van, draft dodging, social security card burning, border sealing, North American Union fearing, Freedom to Fascism loving, Ron Paul voter crowd. Something about the "tea party" label draws them out.
